OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS JANUARY 2022 BIBLE READING 1 SAMUEL 25:14-33

[14] But one of the young men told Abigail, Nabal’s wife, saying, Behold, David sent messengers out of the wilderness to salute our master; and he railed on them.

[15] But the men were very good unto us, and we were not hurt, neither missed we any thing, as long as we were conversant with them, when we were in the fields:

[16] They were a wall unto us both by night and day, all the while we were with them keeping the sheep.

[17] Now therefore know and consider what thou wilt do; for evil is determined against our master, and against all his household: for he is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him.

[18] Then Abigail made haste, and took two hundred loaves, and two bottles of wine, and five sheep ready dressed, and five measures of parched corn, and an hundred clusters of raisins, and two hundred cakes of figs, and laid them on asses.

[19] And she said unto her servants, Go on before me; behold, I come after you. But she told not her husband Nabal.

[20] And it was so, as she rode on the ass, that she came down by the covert of the hill, and, behold, David and his men came down against her; and she met them.

[21] Now David had said, Surely in vain have I kept all that this fellow hath in the wilderness, so that nothing was missed of all that pertained unto him: and he hath requited me evil for good.

[22] So and more also do God unto the enemies of David, if I leave of all that pertain to him by the morning light any that pisseth against the wall.

[23] And when Abigail saw David, she hasted, and lighted off the ass, and fell before David on her face, and bowed herself to the ground,

[24] And fell at his feet, and said, Upon me, my lord, upon me let this iniquity be: and let thine handmaid, I pray thee, speak in thine audience, and hear the words of thine handmaid.

[25] Let not my lord, I pray thee, regard this man of Belial, even Nabal: for as his name is, so is he; Nabal is his name, and folly is with him: but I thine handmaid saw not the young men of my lord, whom thou didst send.

[26] Now therefore, my lord, as the LORD liveth, and as thy soul liveth, seeing the LORD hath withholden thee from coming to shed blood, and from avenging thyself with thine own hand, now let thine enemies, and they that seek evil to my lord, be as Nabal.

[27] And now this blessing which thine handmaid hath brought unto my lord, let it even be given unto the young men that follow my lord.

[28] I pray thee, forgive the trespass of thine handmaid: for the LORD will certainly make my lord a sure house; because my lord fighteth the battles of the LORD, and evil hath not been found in thee all thy days.

[29] Yet a man is risen to pursue thee, and to seek thy soul: but the soul of my lord shall be bound in the bundle of life with the LORD thy God; and the souls of thine enemies, them shall he sling out, as out of the middle of a sling.

[30] And it shall come to pass, when the LORD shall have done to my lord according to all the good that he hath spoken concerning thee, and shall have appointed thee ruler over Israel;

[31] That this shall be no grief unto thee, nor offence of heart unto my lord, either that thou hast shed blood causeless, or that my lord hath avenged himself: but when the LORD shall have dealt well with my lord, then remember thine handmaid.

[32] And David said to Abigail, Blessed be the LORD God of Israel, which sent thee this day to meet me:

[33] And blessed be thy advice, and blessed be thou, which hast kept me this day from coming to shed blood, and from avenging myself with mine own hand.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 10 JANUARY 2022 MESSAGE

The peacemaker is one who prevents trouble from happening by mediating between two quarrelling or warring parties.

Our God loves peace, this is why the Bible says in Romans 12:18: “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.”

How do you react when two of your friends are quarrelling? Do you just watch on or pretend as though nothing is happening?.

Some people would even fuel the quarrel by taking sides, saying things that would make both parties angry to the extent of throwing punches at each other. God is not in support of these.

Abigail in our Bible text for today acted like a true child of God when she made peace between her husband and David who was about to unleash an attack on the entire household.

This same attitude is what God expects of us. When two persons are not on good terms with each other, rather than make it worse, mediate between them and let there be peace.

 

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 10 JANUARY 2022 KEY POINT

At Thy feet its treasure store.
Take myself and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.

The scripture given to Romans 12:18 is wrong, please let us be careful especially as we are ministering to Teens. This group are highly critical, let us not display laxity concerning their spiritual affairs.

God bless

Also, welcome to November 2021 in Jan 2022, please delete that paragraph, it isn’t needed. It shows some things are just copied and pasted. Not a good sign.
